After a day of sightseeing in Prague, the choir performed
the final concert of the tour at St. John's Church in Praque
on May 16. For the seniors, it was a very emotional evening,
because it was the last concert of their Morningside career.
After the concert, as is their custom, the choir members joined
in a circle and sang the Morningside hymn together. Tears
and hugs were shared in abundance at the end of the song.
Today is the last day of the tour, with a closing banquet
to be held tonight. Tomorrow the choir travels home. (Because
of limited Internet access, more photos will not be posted
until May 19--be sure to check back then!)

performed in the town's beautiful 300-year-old church and gave
their best performance yet to the receptive townspeople. They
arrived safely back in Vienna and had the day off today for sightseeing.
